Florida Tech SafeCOVID-19 News and Notices

President's Message: May 7, 2021

Dear Florida Tech community,

Summer classes start next week and we have a moment to pause and consider where we stand in the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic. I believe things are improving, locally and nationally, but we must continue our vigilance.

We had a successful vaccination event on campus last Friday, in collaboration with the Brevard County Health Department. We were glad to see 234 people get their shots in the arms, and we encourage everyone to be vaccinated as they can. Each of us plays an important role in our shared health and safety.

This week, we know of no new cases of COVID-19 among our students, faculty or staff, but we will continue our safety protocols in keeping with the best guidance from the CDC and other health officials. Face coverings, hand sanitization, and appropriate social distancing remain essential tools in the work of beating COVID-19.

I look forward to talking with you again next week.


T. Dwayne McCay, Ph.D.
President & CEO
